  • Selective Neuronal Deathby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 188.00

    Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and motor neuron disease share a significant common feature: selective death of neurons in restricted regions of the brain. This international symposium, held by the Ciba Foundation in 1986, is the first to bring together neurophysiologists working on neuronal death and neuropathologists dealing with human... more...

  • Applications of Plant Cell and Tissue Cultureby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    This work deals with basic plant physiology and cytology, and addresses the practical exploitation of plants, both as crops and as sources of useful compounds produced as secondary metabolites. Covers problems of commercial exploitation, socio-legal aspects of genetic engineering of crop plants, and of the difficulties of marketing natural compunds... more...

  • Crop Protection and Sustainable Agricultureby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 188.00

    The increase in the world population and changes in welfare have led to an enormously expanding demand for food. In the industrialized world, food surpluses rather than shortages are a problem together with adverse environmental impacts from the overuse of chemicals and excessive exploitation of agricultural land. In the developing world, food production... more...

  • Environmental Change and Human Healthby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 188.00

    Discusses those aspects of environmental change which might have direct or indirect effects on human health. Includes discussions on water pollution, agricultural pollution, genetic disease and exotic tropical diseases as well as human nutrition and population growth. more...

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Presented here are the most up-to-date research findings of leading international scientists in the field of aging. The collected data explores the biological, medical, and chemical implications and the latest thinking on the role of proto-oncogenes and their relationship to cell development and deterioration in amphibians, the role of the eukaryotic... more...

  • Proton Passage Across Cell Membranesby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Regulation of intracellular pH is vital to all living cells. This symposium covers the control of pH in muscle and nerve cells and the different mechanisms of acid transport across epithelial and other cell membranes. Papers describe the development and application of microelectrodes and various techniques in molecular biology to the study of the mechanisms... more...

  • Cellular Basis of Morphogenesisby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Contributors to this symposium focus on the interface between genes and cells, covering genetic analysis, cloning studies, and the investigation of cell lineages and cellular interactions. They note how the body axes are already determined in the eggs of invertebrates and amphibia, then consider the mechanisms as the egg cleaves, in annelids, arthropods,... more...
